Tyson Fury rekindles rivalry with UFC star Jon Jones: ‘Imagine the amount of right hands I’d catch you with’

Tyson Fury claims he's been offered a fight with Jon Jones by the UFC

Despite firmly denying the future possibility of sharing the Octagon with UFC heavyweight champion, Jon Jones in a mixed martial arts setting, current WBC heavyweight kingpin, Tyson Fury believes the Endicott veteran is susceptible to a certain punch.

Fury, the current undisputed WBC heavyweight champion, who has been linked with a title fight against fellow world champion, Oleksandr Uysk – has yet to actually book a potential end-of-year pairing, with the Ukraine native instead defending his gold against British challenger, Daniel Dubois later this summer in Poland.

In the time between a much-clamored for fight with Usyk potentially in December in Saudi Arabia, Fury has been linked as well with a potential exhibition bout of sorts with former UFC heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou, with knockdowns unsanctioned in a potential clash of the sport titans.

β€œJon Jones, imagine the amount of [right] hands I’d catch u (sic) with,” Tyson Fury wrote on social media.

And in a fiery response to the WBC heavyweight titleholder, Jones claimed that with some time spent training boxing solely, he could potentially spring the upset against the former.

β€œI have no reason to doubt myself against any man,” Jon Jones replied. β€œGive me a few months in a serious boxing camp. I like my chances. I may just knock you out.” (Transcribed by TalkSPORT)
